Hmmm - January 15th 2009, 10:42 PM

I just cut, a lot and really really deep, it looks like a shark got to me.

I think I might consider going into treatment...

Hey-

What kind of treatment would you be looking into? That may be a really good idea, though I don't know how bad things are for you and so forth.

For right now, you need to make sure to properly clean off your cuts, and bandage them and so forth. If you see any sign of infection, be sure to consult a doctor right away.

What made you want to hurt yourself? Try to find ways to eliminate this possibility for next time. What could you have done instead? Look at things like that to help you out.

Best of luck to you.
Maria.

Idk, I kinda wanna go somewhere like "Sick Minds" in the book Cut. I am really bad, I won't listen to anyone about my cuts anymore I just keep doing them everytime I feel like it and they are usually deep and a lot at a time. I'm very addicted to cutting and I rely on it to make me feel better.

Please, if you want to go into treatment, do so. I also read the book Cut and it's one of my favorites... back to the right topic. I can help you find a place in your area if you would like. Don't give up, please? Dying isn't worth it. I'm so sure. If you want to go into treatment, you should. I wanted to but was too afraid to and now still wish I did. Please, please, please...


I either feel like no one cares, and that I should be breaking things, and that everything is falling apart, or that everything is great, and I can do anything, and I really do have friends.

I'm stuck halfway in between.

Surely at your school you have guidance counselors, right? I'm pretty sure that under law they're required to keep your discussion a secret. Maybe you should talk to them, see if they can help you. If you want the help, you shouldn't let anything stop you. Yes, I know it's easier said than done, but I still believe you can do it if you really want to. Please? Just give it a try when you get back to school maybe.
